Q & A
What is your counselling modality?
I use emotionally focused therapy in the therapy, which is an experimental attachment-based approach. This approach was founded by Dr. Sue Johnson and it is helpful for improving relationships and understanding ourselves. For more details, please visit ICEEFT.
What gives me the confidence that this will work for me?
Everyone is unique. However, if you feel at ease with your therapist and the appropriate therapy modalities are applied, you have a good chance of seeing progress. We have a lot of experience assisting clients in building trust and being comfortable with the therapy process.
What to expect from the sessions?
In the first session, the reasons for coming to counselling will be covered, as well as background information and establishment of some early goals. In subsequent sessions, the ideas, feelings, and behaviours that continue to be problematic will be examined. I will talk about how to cope better, feel better, and deal with challenges more successfully in the long run, and your goals will be reviewed and altered as needed.
Are the sessions confidential?
Your counsellor, like a doctor, is supposed to keep your records private. While there are laws and regulations in place to protect your privacy, confidentiality is also an important aspect of psychology's code of ethics. This means I recognize from the start that you need to feel confident speaking openly with me.
Is it true that a counselling session will make me feel uneasy?
It's understandable to be concerned about having to lead the conversation or, even worse, bringing up a subject about which you are already uneasy. Relax. I will lead you through the talk in a relaxed and natural way, without pressuring or forcing you to provide too much information.
To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world....”
